I'm not sure if I'm allowed to start a thread like this, but I'll just give it a shot.

Which band, in your opinion, is the best modern rock band of 2008? It doesn't have to be a band founded in 2008, but the band that you enjoyed listening the most to in 2008.

I'll have to go with Pearl Jam and RHCP.

Go!

Queens of the Stone Age

They didn't release anything this year... though they did tour.

I'd have to give it to the Gutter Twins. Though if Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds constituted modern rock, I'd give it to them.

Russian Circles for me.

Definately not RHCP because they havn't done anything this year. Pearl Jam did a kick ass tour and so did Eddie, so I guess they'd be up there.

However I think NiN get it, for the amount of touring and free releases Trent has put out in such a short period of time.

And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

Well the Smashing Pumpkins was a great gig so I guess them and Radiohead. Glasgow green.
#11
Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Bloc Party, Idlewild, Muse, Ok Go, The Shins, Modest Mouse, Rage Against the Machine.

I enjoyed a lot of those this year.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

I just meant generally, even without release.

And about NiN, didn't they release an album, Ghost VI or something like that this year?

For what reason, may I ask?

I have been enjoying listening to them the most out of all bands I've been listening to. For many reasons, like John's guitar tones/riffs/solos, their variety in music styles, and their live recordings has some awesome jams no other band I've heard comes near of. I'm sure I can think of more things, but these are stuffs I came up with now right away.

Man, being a fanboy is not as easy as it was right after Stadium Arcadium was released. Now people wanna hear reasons for liking them? Like it had to be explained Maybe you just like someone sayin it

Try listening to some actual jam bands.

But I just don't agree with the fact that a band can be classed 'The best of the year' without actually doing anything at all in that year.

And Chris; NIN released two albums this year. The Slip and Ghosts I-IV. Both free.

When did I ever ask you a reason for liking them? I like them too, y'know...

Ghosts I-IV and The Slip (which is free to download) yes.

In general? In that case I'm gonna say Rage Against The Machine.

What kind of music is it? Same old NiN, or more experimental?

Okay. Just didn't think that really deserved a thread, that's all.

My Morning Jacket. Bended the rules a bit, there. But, they released one of the best albums of the year, and probably put on the greatest tour of the year.

I'll go with Russian Circles. I would go with muse being a little fanboy , but they did nothing this year besides a few shows and recording.
#34
Foo Fighters and Stone Temple Pilots! I saw them both live this year, and I'm pretty sure my future wedding will clock in at 3rd best day ever, next to those two nights. jk, but yea, amazing shows!

If you want to get into NIN properly, then I suggest getting The Downward Spiral.

I just listening to Lights in the Sky, ****ing brilliant. I really enjoy NiN.
